A New Shipwrecked Hull Washes Ashore in Truro

Wellfleet shipwreckThe 40 foot section of timbers and planking of a wooden hull of a ship from the early 1900's, or earlier, has washed ashore in Truro on the outer beach. Although opinions differ, many think this is not the shipwreck that washed up in Wellfleet in January of 2008 and has since been reclaimed by the ocean. Read the story in the Boston Globe Online.

A few of my photos of the January, 2008, shipwreck, thought to be of a late 1800's schooner, converted to a coal tender, can be found on my website at http://shipwreck.robertsheldon.com/. Enjoy.
